A cserkészek magyar nyelvű érettségi vizsgája a KMCsSz szervezésében
The leaders of the Hungarian émigré scouting movement have always seen their primary mission as "patriotic education" of young people, teaching and promoting the use of their mother tongue and imparting knowledge regarding Hungarian history and folk and religious traditions. As they could, for obvious reasons, not rely on support from either their native or host countries, Hungarian scout leaders and teachers established weekend schools and published books on their own, built tests measuring language skill and knowledge about Hungary into scout training and have for many decades successfully conducted a Hungarian language high-school graduation examination system in around a dozen countries on four continents. The few pages of documents shown here provide an insight into the latter practice. From 1955 to 1984, more than 1,000 Hungarian students managed to pass their high-school graduation exams in the subjects of Hungarian language and literature, history, geography, ethnography and the arts.
